One owner (leased and then purchased), California car, Well maintained throughout its life.
This is one car that just would not die --- My wife took it from new to 160K miles and just got tired of this car. Purchased a new X5 in 2011. Kept it as 3rd car, but I just got a new BMW too, so this became a 4th car that we no longer need.
The car has original engine and transmission and never had trouble in both. Car takes about 1 quart oil in between oil changes (always have used synthetic) that BMW service indicator tells -- usually around 10K~12K miles. The automatic transmission shifts no different than when it was new -- no gear shifting up or down issues. Always passed California Smog test with no issues.
New Continental all-season tires with around 4000 miles on them. Always maintained properly and used OEM replacement parts by my mechanic. Recent (3 yrs) major repair/maintenance noted below. It should be self-evident that this car has been well maintained/repaired promptly.
2014-02 (191K miles) New Tires, Heater/AC blower motor resistor replaced. Oxygen Sensor replaced.
2013-12 (189K miles) Fuel gauge sending unit replaced. Front-end Tension Strut, ball-joints, etc, replaced (about time/miles to do this).
2011-01 (176K miles) Radiator reserve tank replaced. Washer pump replaced. Battery replaced.
2011-01 (176K miles) Transfer Case Assembly ("drive train") replaced w/ new OEM parts (over $4K - only major mechanical repair)
2010-04 (155K miles) New brake pad, rotors, etc.
Note: All four power window failed (not motors, but plastic mechanical parts, a common problem, and has been all repaired/replaced -1st one around 50K miles, and last one around 130K miles).
Now for the condition of the car. All the functions, every indicator lamp, control, etc, work on this car -- every flaw that is known to me is listed below (after the options). The paint is in just amazing shape -- the car was NOT waxed before pictures were taken -- the shine indicates the original clear-coat (over metallic green-grey color) still in great shape and not oxidized. AC/Heat works really well -- no different since new. Spare tire is full size, all OEM included tools intact (never used), Two key/remotes (one well used but fully functional and one like-new), one service key plus a plastic key, and owners manual in the glove compartment. Bluetooth hands-free (Motorola T505 aftermarket) will be included and left in the car.
This car has full option (premium, cold-weather, etc), minus sports package. That means,
- Navigation (factory, and western USA map included)
- Leather and wood trim.
- Rear privacy tinted (factory) windows, and window shade (factory)
- Rear seat, split 60/40 and power reclining on each part.
- Heated Seats (two front) and six way power seats, and head-lamp power washer jets
- HID head lamps.
And the standard features for BMW X5 2002 could be had through searching internet. Cars.com has a good summary, but there are others.
List of Flaws
- Paint scrapes on front bumper -- both sides (pictured)
- Center armrest -- odd but only this armrest leather surface is visibly worn.
- Center armrest -- there are two storage area, main, and "cell phone" area. the latch open for the "cell phone" area is stuck open -- and is held by removable putty -- thought about just super-gluing this latch shut but did not. You could.
- Small tear on door panel (pictured)
- One of the park-distance sensor on the rear bumper is held (completely secure and tight, but) by wire (pictured)
- A few visible "parking lot" dings - no damage to paint but visible.
- Navigation LCD screen has developed display "dead" region on lower right side, about and less than 0.5" by 1" area (pictured) at about 130K miles. Further expansion of this LCD screen "dead" area has not expanded in recent years.
- Back of the driver's seat "magazine"pocket is a bit stretched out (pictured). The other magazine pocket is not.
- Trunk mounted 6 CD changer removable cartridge has a stuck CD -- probably repairable but not functional, but sold AS-IS.
- Car had low-speed accident w/ damage to the rear at around 30K miles -- bumper and rear panels replaced/repaired by new parts.
- The trunk/rear window is not original OEM -- was broken into at around 160K miles, and replaced with non OEM glass (i.e. same part and spec, but no BMW logo found on this glass, BTW, rear defroster works fine as expected).
Note: Turtle sticker on the trunk window is on the outside and removable by peeling it off.
Note: Noticed that the Autocheck reports 1st accident (low speed rear damage) correctly, but 2nd accident listed for 2014-04 is in error. There was no incident/accident on this car (my wife's X5 -2011 model did have a minor accident at that time under the same insurance company).
